Objectives

  • To provide our students with rich learning experiences and enhance their language proficiency for study, pleasure, work and personal growth.
  • To develop students’ language skills so that they can engage themselves in interactions and respond to others’ ideas and views with clarity and accuracy for effective communication.
  • To foster a habit of reading and appreciation of the language in order to become competent readers with reading strategies so that they can learn about different cultures and societies as well as people, places and events outside their own experiences.
  • To empower our students to take ownership in their learning process by fostering a positive learning attitude, confidence and responsibility to become lifelong learners.

  

Characteristics of the School-based Curriculum

 

School-based Graded Readers

Using a set of graded readers which is comprised of both fictions and non-fictions of different themes, school teachers design different learning activities for Primary 1 to 6 students to help them develop their language skills in listening, speaking, reading and writing as well as a strong foundation in grammar. Students also acquire generic skills such as collaboration, communication, creativity, critical thinking, information technology, numeracy, problem solving, self-management; values and attitudes.

Literary Appreciation

Students learn to appreciate the beauty of the English language. The Junior Classics Programme at Primary 2 and 3 introduces the students with a set of children classics. Classic novels are also introduced as course readers from Primary 4 to Primary 6. They are provided with opportunities to respond to literature in the classroom and exchange ideas. This will allow them to gain pleasure and understanding of the literature, its value and importance.

 

Drama in Education Programmes

Drama can enhance students’ motivation in learning English and extends learning outside the classroom. To help students gain more confidence in speaking English and to further develop students’ multimodal learning experience, the school has established several drama-in-education programmes which are incorporated into various extra-curricular activities as well as in the English curriculum. The Primary Six English Drama in Education Programme aims to teach students to be critically-literate learners who use higher-order thinking skills to regulate their speaking, listening, reading and writing. The Pr.1-3 Drama Programmes offer a diverse range of roles for students to work with their strengths and interests, and help them develop their multiple intelligences and generic skills.

 

Accelerated Reading Scheme and Parent-Child Reading Scheme 

Reading is an integral part of children’s learning. The Accelerated Reading Scheme for Primary 1 to 3 as well as the Parent-Child Reading Scheme for all levels serve the purpose of promoting the reading culture at school. Students are encouraged to appreciate the value of reading by beginning with picture books, rhymes, fables and fairy tales, then move on to bridging books and advance to stories with intricate plots and characters or other text types with greater complexity.

 

English Language Environment Enrichment Programme (ELEEP)

ELEEP, supported by our English teachers and CNETs, provides an immersive environment for our students to communicate through the usage of the English language on a daily basis. Apart from joining our regular English and Oral lessons as well as participating in various extra-curricular activities, our CNETs promote English learning in the school campus by arranging daily activities during recess time, monthly hall events and the annual English Funfair.

     

    Catering for Individual Needs

    Different programmes are designed to cater for learning diversity. The Pre-Primary One Bridging Programme is to support our young students and help ease the transition into a different learning environment. Pull-out sets are to provide our students with instructions in smaller class settings and with more individualized guidance during English lessons. A variety of English extra-curricular activities are offered to address our students’ individual interests and preferences during the ECA periods so as to broaden the scope of learning and realise their potentials.
